Spc. Jordan Morris of Stillwater, Oklahoma paid the ultimate price on Aug 11, 2011. Although I never had the honor to know him, I thank him for my freedom. May God bless his family and friends.
My husband, Rick (aka Dash) is the Patriot Guard Ride Captain for Stillwater. He had the responsibility of leading the PGR yesterday, August 20, 2011 as they honored Spc. Morris and his family. A big job but he loved doing it. Dash had 257 motorcycles, trikes and their riders to guide. (The unofficial count was 288.) That is my husband saluting the family with his fellow riders behind him.
The PGR in the funeral procession to the cemetery. That's Dash, on the first bike. You can't see it but bikes are still turning the corner waaay back. Wow, the Patriot Guard turned out en masse!
This video shows the riders traveling to the funeral site after being briefed on the mission. Many, many people volunteered efforts to keep the riders fed and hydrated during a long, long hot day. Thank you! Another big thank you to all the other Ride Captains and riders that assisted Dash yesterday.
